A man died Tuesday evening as a result of a bite from a copperhead snake while camping in southeast Missouri. According to police, Timothy Levins and his family had camped out at Sam A. Baker State Park when the 52 year-old died suddenly due to anaphylactic shock from a snakebite, while out on a hike. In the history of the state of Missouri, three deaths have occurred from copperhead snake bites, including Levins.
